    Hey guys! We will be having Halo: Reach tonight! Yay! With me back in action, I'm ready to blow out some brainzz.

    In order for me to use the back-compat online services, I have to play with my old account, BDub1002. I hope to see you all tonight!

    We have reports that vivalablake89 will be making a return tonight via orbital drop pod, feet first into hell!
    I'll be a little late. Had to work today (kinda weird being here alone).

    Ok man, sounds good. We'll see ya' there.

    I imagine we will be doing Custom Games. We'll just wing it.

    we have to definitely do more big team battle, I think if we have a decent size group like we did the other night we should dominate every time. We actually had pretty organized coordination all over the map and the communication level was pretty good for the amount of people.

    Yeah I thought we all worked well together and was very surprised how easy it was to talk and hear people in a party of 8.

    I also got to see some aftermath of mongoose shenanigans courtesy of Schankerz and pipninja . That was pretty awesome. :)

    Did they get the goose to the top of the tower?:D

    Anyway, the plan for tomorrow is...I don't know. I'm thinking some more party-style games for large groups of people. Classic party-style games like Fatboy, Juggernaut, Oddball, and whatever else springs too mind. See you all on the battlefield!

    So guys...tomorrow, we will be having a sweaty playlist. Meaning, we will be playing more competitive matches than before. If any of you guys can make it, that would be awesome.

    We will be doing regular RvB slayer, but with a slight twist. Red team will be communicating only with it's own team, and Blue team can only hear other blue team players, in order to isolate teams. This will only be temporary, after the sweaty matches, we can go back to regular fun stuff, but I wanted to really hone our skills and learn each other's Halo strengths and weaknesses as well as playstyle. If we can nail this, we will absolutely destroy our match-made competitors. so red and blue teams will be in their own parties.

    The overall plan is to match up our fellow 405th teammates and get to know each other's playstyles to learn who plays what position the best.

    Another thing I would like to do is play some elimination-style Reach combat, where we will face more desparate measures and truly push our skills to the limits and eventually become better players. Think of it like Breakout, but Reach style.

    I think FFA is also pretty important for learning perfect map movement. In FFA, you have to know where everyone spawns on the maps, where people come from, etc. So I think this will be perfect for helping our skills improve.

    In a nutshell, it's basically a training exercise/tournament. pipninja, SI3RRA 117, PerniciousDuke, vivalablake89, Schankerz, TwinMustang, come and join!

    Yup. 4 reals. Super serious. It is all going to be Reach based. I think I'll do a Halo 5 based Spartan training program, too. I'm no pro, but I want to learn the ways of the Spartan. :D "Teach me, Master Chief!!" *bows*

    Hello everyone! Today we will be doing some more competitive stuff, as well as some casual fun and games. I have some Fatboy modes in mind. Anyone who would like to come, feel free to join us!

    But...it's Reach...OKAY FINE. :p

    I don't mind doing a round until everyone else arrives, but once people show up, I'd prefer to go back to Reach.

    OK guys, I wanna do some competitive Halo 5 tonight. Similar to what we did with Halo: Reach, but this time, H5! Fun stuff!

    Competitive? Like Halo 5 Arena? If yes, what time exactly?

    5 PM PST; so in 4 and a half hours (ish). When I say competitive, I mean we'll be playing Custom Games as a group, but with HCS and default maps in CTF and Slayer modes. Each team will be separated into its own party to induce more competitive team play. If we have an odd number of people, we'll probably do FFA or something like that. Mostly just stuff to help us become better players. If it doesn't work out, we'll just do some matchmaking.

    Feel free to join! We do this every Saturday (and also Monday) and we're always looking for more people! Everyone is welcome! :)

    lol, well, tonight I want to break away from Reach again and play some Halo 5. Tonight is Double XP weekend for Mythic Shotty Snipers, SWAT, and Warzone; so I wanted to jump in on that action.

    Also, next Sunday is an official Microsoft FFA Halo tournament that I wanted to attend. So...I would like to practice a round or two of Custom FFA. Afterwards, we'll just vote on who wants to do what, I guess. :)

    Besides, I finally bought a new Mic, so I can actually speak now. lol.
